There's something about River Valley that brings out the best in the Monroe softball team when they lace up their cleats. With the No. 2-ranked Blackhawks and No. 3-ranked Cheesemakers locked in a 5-5 tie in the bottom of the sixth inning, Monroe sophomore Kari Jordan delivered a two-out two-run single and junior Kirsten Vetterli lined a two-run double to right to give the Cheesemakers a comeback 9-5 win in a WIAA Division 2 regional championship game Thursday, May 23 at Twining Park.
